About Us

The National Coalition for Drug Legalization is a nonprofit (501(c) 3 ) organization committed to advancing the conversation about the legalization of all drugs through research and community service. The so-called “War on Drugs” has been an epic failure and it will take love, determination, vision, and leadership to open people’s minds about ending prohibition.
America has been conditioned to think prohibition against drugs is protecting our nation without giving much thought to the devastating effects our current criminal justice laws have had on communities of color, the working poor, and those who suffer from medical illness.
The National Coalition for Drug Legalization works to get people thinking about drug legalization in a positive light by working to address issues related to poverty, pursuing research opportunities in support of ending prohibition, and engaging in acts of kindness in the interest of the public good.
